Before you settle down…

I met up with some friends for dinner recently and one of them brought up his pending nuptials. He said that when he met his now fiancée he already knew he was ready to settle down. There was not much left for him to explore, discover or conquer.

Get your mind out of the gutter, kids. He wasn’t only referring to sexual conquests. Generally, he doesn’t feel like he will miss anything after he gets married. He traveled, jumped out of airplanes, and drank a lot.

This made me think of all the advice well-meaning people tell us spinsters: “You should enjoy your freedom while you still have it” or something equally annoying. Why do people think your married life limits your possibilities?

Do you ever think that there are certain things single people should do or try before settling into committed or married life?
